QUESTIONS

  • I just got married and changed my last name and want to change my daughters last name to match my husband's and my last name. Her current last name was my maiden name. Her biological father has never been in her life. How do I go about changing her last name?
  • My daughter is 2 and I am still in high school. Can I collect support from her dad? we never married and aren't together.He claims her on his taxes but doesn't share anything with me. Because I am in school, it works out that she probably spends 60% with me and 40% with him.
  • When you have someone on Facebook making threats to you about a service you did for them and they didn't like it now they want to threaten you and go to places you're at to hurt you
  • I submitted an application to Community Legal Services, yesterday, for Cody Mohr. What is the next step? I attempted to call the Central office today. I was on hold and had only one person ahead of me, then the hour passed and they hung up, as they stated they would. I can try again tomorrow. Should Cody and I go down to their office. Would he be able to find out when he might get to talk to someone about free legal help? Please advise. Cody's daughter is very bright should not have been held back in 1st grade. Peyton told me that she falls asleep at school. Dad-Cody Mohr 6029922914
  • How do I file an amendment to my response for custody and child support, I would like to add that i want to discuss arrearages of child support and 1/2 med exp owed by father.
  • Moved into renovated home was to be done by 6/18 (day moved in). Upon arrival; 2 baseball size holes in 2 windows & piles of trash under carport. Due to incorrect measurements windows would be another week. Week1 dryer vent had to be re-cut, electrician rewired house due to fire hazard. Week2 plumbing unable to do laundry 2weeks now, family has to share 1 bathroom, windows not replaced. Week3 windows replaced 7/1–7/6, plumbing on hold to find better price (laundry?), & still sharing bathroom. Was given 1 months free rent but asking us to pay full electricity bill. What are her obligations?
  • I have joint & several restitution,i have never paid into, i served prison time, they didn't. Now, it's going to go to an outside collection agency. I am in fear they'll try to take my husbands income by force. Can they do this? He is not involved at all.
  • I want to know if I change my name back to my birth name, if I can still use both names. i.e. Birth Name changed from Ernest (info removed), I want to continue using both names. i.e. My current legal name is Merrick (info removed)
  • Just recently got married ,moved out of my rental because the wife has a lease on an apt until april 2016 the apt we live in has a washroom adjoined to it ,the plumbing has leaked twice into the bathroom and bedroom ruining the carpet and some personal belongings. this has happened twice. I complained directly to the property management and her response is "i am not authorized to notify or request repairs because I am not on the lease" my question is in Arizona can management companies ignore safety and health complaints due to a spouse not being on the lease.
  • I have been employed at the same job for 9 years. Can my employer ask my age? Ask if I'm going to retire? Ask if I filed for Social Security? Ask how much I will be receiving every month then cut my hours from 40 per week to 24 per week? Tell me my job is guaranteed to the end of the year and then it depends if he will keep me. I have over 24 years experience and he was going to lay me off and keep the person in their 30's who has 5 years experience because they made $6,000 less than me. Can he do this since I'm a senior citizen?
